"The seasonings in this were excellent. I did not think they would be (marjoram and rosemary? no garlic?) but they gave this sauce so much flavor. You don't even have to bake everything if you don't want - can just pour the sauce over spaghetti and load it up with cheeses and eat. I used a mixture of pork and beef (meatloaf mixture) only because that's what I had on hand. My daughter said it was too meaty, but I thought it was just fine, and I'm not a big meat sauce person myself. A really good recipe that I will make again. If you want the sauce less meaty, just add some Ragu or something. Or use less meat lol."

"A plus recipe!! Spaghetti has always been my favorite dish as a kid and even as a adult. I was so excited to try this recipe. I thought it was strange to use cream of mushroom and tomato soup but wow i was wrong. I made this for my family today!! Everyone loved it and even had 2nds and 3rds. The only thing I changed and recommend in the recipe is, I didn't add the sugar, it already had a perfect taste. I would double the soups and tomato sauce and water. Instead of adding seperate seasonings, I used a packet of spaghetti seasoning. I would use 2 packets if you double the soups, sauce and water. It was very good and I will be making again. We just enjoy it with a little more sauce!! Yummy"

"i quadripled this recipe for my sons highschool foot ball team dinner. all four pans were devoured!! i did add mushrooms to one and diced tomato to all. italian seasoning works well too if you dont have the individual spices. Also an inexpensive way to feed a crowd on a single mom budget. thank you !!"

"I really liked this. I made it because I was trying to use some canned goods from my pantry, and it's going to become a staple in my house. I used vegetarian soy "meat" crumbles in place of the ground beef, and pizza sauce in place of the tomato sauce (because that was the closes thing I had to tomato sauce). It was great! I will definitely make this again."
